The upcoming release of Gran Turismo 5 will be the biggest selling PlayStation 3 title of the year surpassing the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops and FIFA 11, new reports suggest.
5 million copies of the GT5 demo sold. Gran Turismo 10.85 million copies sold Gran Turismo 2 9.37 million copies sold Gran Turismo 3 14.89 million copies sold Gran Turismo 4 11.06 million copies sold Gran Turismo PSP 2.96 million copies sold Without a doubt.
GT series has always been a guarranteed 10 million seller. it has its fanbase. no matter what the reviews say, its going to do those numbers.
5 million without counting the PSN downloads.
GT5p sold nearly 4 million copies - http://www.gtplanet.net/gt5... Laughing at the title of this story... LoL Gran Turismo 5 release to be year's "biggest PS3 game" duh...??? .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Was there ever any doubt? There have been some awesome games this year, but this one is friggin' gargantuan. Tons of racing fans have been waiting for this game. Hell - a lot of them bought a PS3 just for this game (or have been waiting to buy a PS3 until it is released).
Pre-ordered my Collector's Edition. Pretty stoked. :) Thank you November for raping my wallet.
Holy sh*t... Even the PSP version sold that much? Gran Turismo 5 will definitely dominate the racing genre and the PS3's install base should sky rocket.
What else did Sony really have this year? I don't think, as a whole, this entire year was that good for gaming. In fact, it was one of the weakest years I've ever seen. Heavy Rain and God of War 3 were really all Sony had this year. They came early too. I wasn't impressed with God of War 3 and Heavy Rain I went into wanting to hate but ultimately liked it in the end. I'm since playing back thru it with Move but it's not as good the second time around.
Sony's PS3 2010: Killzone 2 - doh,2009 White Knight Chronicles Yakuza 3 ModNation Racers MAG Heavy Rain 3D Dot Game Heroes God of War 3 Troll harder. Edit: If you're going to troll PS3 stories at least put some effort into your posts. Make them funny or at least interesting. Pretending to be the disenchanted fan of the system who isn't impressed with anything is as old a console fanboyism itself.
Killzone 2 came out in 2010? Sucks for you, I was playing it in Feb of 2009. & who's trolling? I own a Ps3 and every game you just listed damn near. I'm just being honest. You're the one with sad in the pants issues. & just because you like those games doesn't mean I do or did. When I say they really didn't have anything I mean they really didn't have anything for "ME". The one that matters in this equation.
lol Bad troll is TERRIBLE
I wouldn't say Sony had no titles but there were some big names like LBP2,SOCOM4 and DC Universe Online(for me anyway) that got delayed to next year so it was a slim year for Sony, but the first half had quite a few big titles though. Next year though is insane with the sheer number of quality titles matching or even beating back 2009 listings on all platforms though Sony seems to have the advantage in exclusives.
I really wonder what the 360 had exclusive this year, oh reach for the sky.
Yeah Sony's year has been slim but it would have been really great if LBP2 released this year. Would have made the year for me.
lol. did you just accuse sitlab of trolling a PS3 thread. Hes one of the biggest 360 haters on this site. For once I agree with him, this year has disappointing for games all around compared to the last three years. Theirs been some great games this year, but this time last year and the year before I was having to pick and choose games to buy.
I think GoW3 was super amazing (best Boss fights in any game I've played) but it came too early in the year and then there was some sort of exclusive AAA titles vacuum. I mean Triple A games were MAG, HR, Yakuza 3 and GoW3 all of them tightly packed in a 3 months timeframe. WKC was a year old game, that essentially flopped, Mod Nation Racers was good but no hyped and 3D dot is a niche game. With LBP2 delayed, GT5 is the big title for this year. Well, actually GT5 is the BIG title on PS3 PERIOD. It should greatly help Sony to sell a lot of PS3s.
54,07 million gran turismo games sold + new one coming out for few days,so that's gonna be more then 60 million gran turismo copies sold! IMPRESSIVE INDEED!!!
Incredible. An absolute monster of a franchise. No surprise the Sony haters out there are running around screaming in panic like a nuclear bomb is just about to drop on them.
in europe maybe, in america it'll have all the impact of a wet noodle.
"in europe maybe, in america it'll have all the impact of a wet noodle." Bzzzttt!!! GT Sales Totals Worldwide And Regional: http://www.polyphony.co.jp/... GT 3 did 7.1 million in the US alone GT 4 did 3 million in the US alone
@piesmasher: Haha, I think FlatulentGhost justed proved you wrong. GT3's 7.1 million in America alone, thats damn impressive! Piesmasher's previous comments are 'the sony fangirls will be tearing through the kleenex and lube over this article...' 'most of sony's 2011 line-up will become sony's 2012 line-up. just look at this past year. you'll get 2010s games in '11 and 2011's games in '12. that's how sony works.' ect.ect.... Haha its funny reading through your posts. I actually pity you. Seriously, the highlight of his days seem to be trolling PS3 articles .What a sad,socially retarded loser you must be. Btw I think you'll be needing the kleenex, when you're crying into your pillow because you can't play GT5.
Well OF COURSE this is the years biggest PS3 game, haha
It won't sell like all you PS3 fanboys think. You guys will be disappointed. Its shooters this gneration.....NOT the racing genre. I don't wanna hear PS3 fanboys say "Oh we have variety" or "Oh it has long legs"...etc. Sorry Sony not this GEN
sheesh u seem mad,playstation does have variety
well it doesn't matter really. ps1 is platforming gen, they still sell a lot. ps2 is jrpg gen, it still sell a lot. see the trend is like same asking Rockstar game will not sell a lot
"It won't sell like all you PS3 fanboys think. You guys will be disappointed.Its shooters this gneration.....NOT the racing genre." Compared to other Racing games on the market, even in previous console gen's. GT was one of the few Racing Sim's on consoles (it was probably the only one) that could put up the kind of numbers it did on one console. This console generation might be "shooter happy", but it still doesn't change the fact that Gran Turismo has a VERY large fanbase, regardless how popular Shooters have become. Honestly I doubt that GT5 will sell as much as it's predecessors in the 10 million range, but I think it'll do at least 6-8 million, which to me would still be a lot and more than enough to be called a success in this Shooter Console generation.
Even if it doesn't sell well(which it will), PS3 will just add another top-genre title to its catalog.
lol! 360 fanboys trolling a gt5 article (not very surprising) *sniff* do i smell fear? very strong scent indeed! lol can't wait to see the damage control from the XDF when gran turismo sales figures come in going to be very funny.
This game is probaby the biggest system seller the ps3 could have, other games might sell some systems but this game will sell ALOT. This game just has massive appeal to people who traditionally dont game that much, plus its a cultural thing (especially in europe)
I'm a 360 owner and I'm very interested to see how well GT5 sells. On one side you got past sales numbers of other GT games and they are huge, But on the other side ... this gen competitive FPS's are the top sellers on both on 360 and PS3. I made a bet with one guy on this site that COD: BO on Ps3 would sell more then GT5.
will probably overtake COD:BO on the PS3 after a few weeks. That's my prediction, remember, COD:BO is multiplatform, while GT5 is exclusive to the PS3. A lot of 360 owners are going to buy a PS3 just for this game. A lot more PS2 owners are waiting to buy a PS3 just for this game.
Yeah, well my bet was that the PS3 version of COD:bo would sell mire than GT5
@etownone im pretty sure you already lost the bet. wouldnt be too suprised if GT5 preorders would already be near the sales of cod bo on ps3 atm... coming holidays gt5 + ps3 packages will be steamrolling the competition. without a doubt!
Oh Yeah! It has a huge fan base and if you like racing games this is going to a stellar game.
i think gt5 will sell well in every region no matter what some troll says, they all seem to be very touchy on the subject of gt5 i wonder why? hmm.
no more so than the fangirl panic everytime a halo game comes out and your sociopathic rantings about kinect.
GT5 and PS3 will dominate the holidays. Nothing can stop them.
i'm happy, when gt5 hits the rest of us will have some blissful peace&quiet on here for a few days. i could actually read about some games without the damn near paranoid and sociopathic posting about the ps3 in every f*cking topic.
I am just amazed how more are concerned about the sales of this game vs the new level of a racing sim this game is going to bring to the gaming community. The last few vids were freaking unreal. any REAL gamer knows sales is related to a games popularity, not necessarily the technical quality or the TRUE measure of how a game is... just look at sales of Madden and COD games... they are jokes compared to the technical aspects of GT
Not the biggest release of the year... the biggest release for the Ps3 since it is in the market. GT is Sony's flagship title.
I'm not sure it will outsell black ops (PS3 version only). Call of duty seems to be the GTA of this generation, much in the same way GTA (PS2) outsold everything including Gran Turismo, COD seems to be doing the same. But after that I don't see why it wouldn't be the best seller.
Long live the King!
